In seeking to develop and refine international standards for professional excellence, The Academy has been most fortunate to have serving on its Advisory Council many prominent practitioners in the areas of counseling, psychotherapy, chemical dependency counseling, behavioral medicine and coaching. These individuals, all of whom are IABMCP Diplomates, bring a wealth of valuable experience and wisdom that has been, and continues to be, extremely helpful to The Academy. In keeping with The Academy's eclectic philosophy, members of IABMCP's Advisory Council represent a wide range of theoretical orientations and clinical approaches. Their one common characteristic is that they have all made major contributions to their chosen disciplines and are widely respected authorities with regard to the approaches that they practice. Collectively, IABMCP Diplomates have authored hundreds of books and thousands of articles in the professional journals.
